Cover Loving: Blake Lively Wraps Up In Gucci For Lucky Magazine

Lucky Sept Blake Lively Cover Loving: Blake Lively Wraps Up In Gucci For Lucky Magazine %tag

So the September issues are finally dropping and I have been a little underwhelmed so far, well that was until I saw the gorgeous Blake Lively all wrapped up in this incredible oversized cornflower blue Gucci coat with shearling collar.

Granted with our mini heatwave that we are having wrapping up in a shearing collar coat doesn’t sound appealing – but come on you have to admit that the Gossip Girl star looks incredible on Lucky’s September cover.

Snapped by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, the actress who married Ryan Reynolds last year is the first cover girl for the magazine’s redesign with new editor-in-chief Eva Chen, if like me you are huge Teen Vogue fans you will already be familiar with her work.

Just from the cover I can see that Eva is bringing a more high-fashion feel to Lucky, which I am already excited about, and even though in the past I have enjoyed reading Lucky the covers never really drew me in – but I think that could all be changing.

Head on over to Lucky to see a preview of her cover shoot, Blake looks amazing in an Anthony Vaccarello dress, a classic DKNY trench, a sexy red gown that you will be surprised to find out is H&M, as well as cool oversized Givenchy jumper teamed with the sheer skirt that Zoe Saldana wore on the red carpet – I also love that the mag credits her wedding ring, which in case you were wondering she is wearing throughout!!!

In the accompanying interview Blake chats about dressing up, on texting Christian Louboutin for shoe advice, her style evolution, not having a stylists and how apparently her hubbie has “better taste” than her – I can’t wait to read – I have loved Blake since her GG girls as Serena van der Woodsen and this is a great cover.

What do you think of the new-look Lucky? Are you a fan of Blake Lively’s cover?

For more insight into her cover shoot – check out the behind-the-scenes video that Lucky have posted:

Cover Loving: Jennifer Lopez For W Magazine

jennifer lopez w august 2013 Cover Loving: Jennifer Lopez For W Magazine %tag

Wow, wow, wow – just look how fabulous Jennifer Lopez looks on the August cover of W magazine – seriously hot!!!

Dressed in Gucci, Jennifer Lopez has an Old Hollywood feel about her on this stunning cover shot by Mario Sorrenti and I love it.

I think the reason why I love it so much is because it is so OTT, this is J-Lo doing her best diva pose and she is working that feathered dress – it is just so glam and a little bit ridiculous – but so works for me. Also, not sure if it is just me, but it kind of reminds me of Elizabeth Taylor’s iconic boudoir scene from ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof’.

As well as loving the look, can we also discuss Jennifer’s hair and make-up? Isn’t it very similar to Emma Watson’s June/July cover? But hell, who cares I am loving Jennifer’s darker and shorter hair, those curls, surely a wig but again I don’t care, I seriously can’t wait to see the accompanying editorial.

This cover is so not what I expected from Jennifer Lopez or an August magazine, but I can tell you I will certainly be picking this issue of W up – will you?

Oscars 2013: Jennifer Garner Stunning In Gucci

Oscars jennifer garner  Oscars 2013: Jennifer Garner Stunning In Gucci %tagWho: Jennifer Garner

Where: At the 85th Annual Academy awards held in Los Angeles

Wearing: A custom strapless plum Gucci gown, featuring cascading ruffles down her back leading into a train, teamed with $2.5 million worth of Neil Jane jewellery, which included a statement necklace, delicate earrings and a bracelet, and a gunmetal Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit clutch

Verdict: Jennifer Garner really has had a great award season supporting her hubbie Ben Affleck and this is one of my favourite looks and it is all down to the amazing plum colour, which looks incredible against her pale skintone.

This look has everything the Oscars deserves, dramatic ruffles down her back, a sophisticated train, a striking colour – oh and then she takes it to the next level with the glamour that incredible Neil Lane diamond necklace oozes.

I just can’t help but adore this look!!!

LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala: Amy Adams vs Cameron Diaz In Gucci Yellow

Gucci amy vs cameron LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala: Amy Adams vs Cameron Diaz In Gucci Yellow %tag

On Saturday, a host of celebrities hit the red carpet to attend the LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala host by Gucci honouring Ed Ruscha and Stanley Kubrick – I have already gushed about Rosie, but two other ladies that also impressed me were Amy Adams and Cameron Diaz both wearing yellow.

Both went for spring/summer 2013 collection looks, Cameron opted for a short number showing off her fab legs, whereas Amy went for an elegant floor-skimming gown with a bejewelled waistband. Both look amazing, both really pull off this tricky yellow colour, not quite sunshine yellow, not quite mustard it is somewhere in-between  and in some photographs it even looked a little neon, but I love the contrast of the short and long it made both looks stand out for me.

Amy’s look is more traditional for a gala even, it is floor-length, has added sparkle with the waistband and her clutch and I love the strapless silhouette – but there is something about Cameron’s bell-sleeve belted mini that is just so fun and I absolutely love the crystal-embellished floral neckline.

Which girl in yellow gets your vote – Amy or Cameron? Even with Cameron’s legs looking amazing in this dress I am going to have to say that Amy’s long gown just pips her.

Gucci RHW LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala: Rosie Huntington Whiteley In Gucci %tagWho: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Where: At the LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala host by Gucci honouring Ed Ruscha and Stanley Kubrick

Wearing: A striking mint green floor-length Gucci gown featuring a ruffled neckline that cascaded down her back, teamed with white Gucci ankle-strap heels and a Gucci perspex clutch – all from the spring/summer 2013 collection

Verdict: The M&S designer/model/actress always looks stunning, she has an effortless beauty about her, which is perfect for this gorgeous elegant gown.

I love her barely there make-up, I truly adore that she wore her hair in a braided bun, it really showed off that wonderful neckline to the dress, and I am so pleased that she teamed her mint green dress with that icy coloured clutch.

I really don’t think I can fault this look. As always Rosie you look stunning.

BFiArgoBen3 Friday Eye Candy: Ben Affleck In Gucci At The London Film Festival %tag

Who: Ben Affleck

Where: At the “Argo” premiere during the 56th BFI London Film Festival at the Odeon Leicester Square

Wearing: A midnight blue Gucci suit, teamed with a white shirt, a navy and pink stripped tie and brown accessories

Verdict: I am thinking this should be a regular feature – Friday eye candy was definitely in order this morning and it doesn’t get better than a dapper looking Ben Affleck – hot, hot, hot!!!

I love blue suits, and this midnight blue two-button Gucci suit really pops on the red carpet, but for me it is all about the styling – that navy and pink tie looks amazing.

I do love a man in a notch lapel suit, a crisp white shirt and a tie and Ben is completely working this look with ease – add in the unshaven look and I am seriously in love!!!

What do you think – hot or not?

Gucci Premiere Launch: Blake Lively Shimmers In Gucci

GucciPremiereBlakeLively1 Gucci Premiere Launch: Blake Lively Shimmers In Gucci %tag

Who: Blake Lively, the face of Gucci’s new fragrance Gucci Premiere

Where: At the unveiling of the Director’s Cut of the Gucci Premiere film held at the Hotel Cipriani during the 2012 Venice International Film Festival

Wearing: A one-of-a-kind burgundy sleeveless deep v-neck, fully embroidered Gucci cocktail dress featuring raised flower detailing around the neckline, teamed with burgundy python Gucci Kinga Spike high heels, and pink gold and black diamond bracelet and ring finished off her look

Verdict: Well it was a given that Blake would wear Gucci, but what did surprise me was the colour, I love this deep wine shade on her, and I was expecting a gown that skimmed the floor, but I suppose considering she made her entrance on a boat it is hardly surprising that she chose to go short.

Blake looked absolutely incredible, everything from the shade to the high-glitz of the fully embroidered overlapping palettes, to her flawless make-up and messy updo, I love this look from head-to-toe. It may not have been what I was expecting but I love that it wasn’t girlie, this cocktail dress is edgy and it suits her.

I also had to include the picture of Blake with Frida Giannini, as I just adore Frida’s grey silk crepe Gucci cocktail dress with Art Deco-inspired beaded – the silhouette is divine.

What do you think of Blake’s look? Was you expecting something different?

Check out the Nicolas Winding Refn’s director’s cut of the Gucci Premiere film below – I loved the commercial version but this is just exquisite, I especially like the soundtrack.
